It is possible to resize a partition with a system up but only if you can unmount that partition. Not if it is your primary partition.

From the command line you can use parted, or from a graphical environment gparted or qtparted.

Based on the answer from your provider. Why do you need to add the swap space and why they don't like it?

Is it at all possible to resize a partition in centos and add a swap and enable it while a server is online.
if so what would commands of such an action look like?
